Property company Lend Lease has unveiled plans for a
5,200sqm events venue at retail
complex Bluewater in Kent.
The £60m Bluewater Events Venue is being hailed as “the
next milestone in the evolution of Bluewater”.
It aims to complement the existing offer with specialist
consumer events housed in a
purpose-built venue to provide a year-round, consumer-orientated leisure experience for the 28 million
people who visit the site each year.
Organiser Clarion Events
has been appointed as the first strategic partner of the venue. CEO Simon Kimble
says: “We are delighted to be the first company to be asked to run events at
Bluewater. We jumped at the chance to support the venture and feel that the
dynamic, multi-faceted nature of Bluewater will be a perfect fit for our events
and will offer state of the art facilities for visitors and exhibitors
Construction of the project will
commence in Spring 2010 with the
first events taking place in late 2011.
